A dance party broke out on the court at EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City in the moments after No. 9 seed Wichita State upset No. 1 seed Gonzaga on Saturday night. Wichita State players started it and head coach Gregg Marshall and athletic director Eric Sexton joined in along with family members.
Butler coach Brad Stevens has attracted attention for doing his best to not attract attention in big wins and tough losses. He simply strolls down the sideline looking to shake hands with the opponent regardless of what just happened on the court.
Nothing wrong with that. A lot of coaches prefer to leave the celebrating to the players and fans, but at this time of year it's fun to see the guys in suits get into the act, too. How could Marshall not shimmy and shake? His team beat the No. 1 ranked team in the polls entering the tournament for the first time in 50 years to advance to the Sweet 16. Did we mention this was supposed to be a rebuilding year for the Shockers?
Coaches ought to be able to enjoy the ride a bit, good to see Marshall doing so.
